Did we ever find out why?
The deluxe price point has changed, the figures have become smaller. 3 of these figures (excluding Axalon) are just a lot more plastic than the average deluxe figure now. Axalon is priced like regular deluxes because he's not as large as the others.
Takara is charging too much for these, but they also don't have a price point between deluxe and voyager at this time. Same goes for the Scout class two packs which they're charging too much for.
It was the Axalon, still being carded that confused me the most! I'd forgotten about the scout 2pks, not that it stopped my dropping the cash on Rumble and Frenzy!
What does a Takara deluxe retail at in Japan then?
These prices all come from e-Hobby:
United Deluxes retail for 2,125 Yen or 2,587 Yen and "Voyagers" for 3,326 Yen. Meanwhile, Arms Micron Deluxes are 1,848 Yen and Arms Micron Voyagers are 3,696 Yen.
As you can see, TakaraTomy has a pretty liberal pricing system between lines.
Top 5 Priorities:
1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) RiD Landfill (regular, not the yellow)
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)
Also looking for Arms Microns, especially Shadow (Gora & R.A.), Hellflame and Shining (O.P. and R.A.).Preparing to move to the US!
